Cathedral Ceiling Help!

Recommended Posts

Hi All,


 


Hopefully someone can help me. I've been trying to create a cathedral ceiling in Home Designer Architectural 2015 like the images attached. I follow the steps to create one as per the directions on the Knowledge Base but it always comes out looking like this. Even the picture in the Knowledge Base has these qualities. It seems that one side is slanted, while the other remains tall. My goal is to have the living room and entryway be entirely a 2 sided cathedral ceiling, while the kitchen and dining room remain a normal flat ceiling. Is this something I can do in Architectural, or must I update to Pro?


 


Thanks and I hope to hear from you soon!

What you are seeing is the direct underside of your roof planes, so set this way that is what you see the bottom of your roof planes. If you require a smoother look sloped soffits is your best answer in Architectural 2015:

Thank you SO much! That was a great video. I'm definitely going to try this.

 

So in Pro, there is actually a tool that allows you to do this more intuitively? Either way, this is a great fix!
